Agar is a mixture of a neutral, dominating polysaccharide called "Agarose" and a charged polymer called
"Agaropectin". The agarose is composed of (1-4) linked 3,6-anhydro -a- - L - galactose alternating with
(1-3) linked - b - D - galactose.
As a soluable jelly,especially in boiled water Agar has two states:strip and powder.Even lowed the density
to 1%, Agar can still be relatively stable jelly,thus has an important character in industry,being the necessary
materials in Food Industry,Chemical Industry and Medicine and Science Research.
In Food Industry,Agar has the following characteristics:Stabilizing and coagulating, can be widely used in
producing drink,icecream,sugar,canned food,meat products etc, as coagulant, densifying agent,emulsifying
agent,keeping fresh agent, stabilizing agent ,floation agent.
In chemical Industry and Medicine & Science Research,Agar is used as ointment-base and cultivate-base
and so on.
